Don’t you wish sometimes that you could have this feeling… like right in the middle of a Tuesday? I seem to be always looking for the breathless moment, the event that will catch my breath, the news story that will stop everyone in their tracks, or the bit of office drama that will get the whispers and emails rolling. Aren’t I awful?
My brain needs things to chew on and for me, a busy brain is a happy brain. I get bored easily and I need something to ponder. And I especially like something to look forward to. I realize that sounds childish; like I need Christmas in the back of my mind, or my birthday, or some other event where I get presents.
I guess it’s just the way I’m wired.
I’m very task oriented too, and when I see the end of the task approaching, it literally makes me happy. That sense of accomplishment and closure is so great. But if you give me a job that’s too big, I get a little green around the gills. I can’t see the end and so it depresses me.
Recently, I was assigned a project at work writing copy for the 2012 calendar. When I was given the task, I thought it would be a breeze. I sailed through January and February, March was a little tough, spring and summer beat me down, and winter absolutely finished me. I should have broken it up into seasons; wouldn’t that have been a novel idea?
Yeah, I’m quick like that.
Life has a pretty big learning curve, and I’m not even half-way through it. I suppose I can cut myself a little slack.
Don’t be too hard on yourself today, we are all still learning!
